Conor McGregor has accused bitter rival Khabib Nurmagomedov of ‘scurrying away’ from a potential rematch.
‘The Notorious’, who returns to the octagon to face Dustin Poirier on January 23, even went as far as suggesting the Russian failed to make weight for his final fight before retirement.

McGregor, who will headline UFC 257 on Fight Island in his comeback, has held a personal vendetta against the Russian ever since 2018.
After witnessing Khabib harassing training partner Artem Lobov, McGregor infamously flew to Brooklyn in the hope of a confrontation. However, he would be forced to wait until October when he was choked out at UFC 229.
The war of words has never really subsided despite the defeat, with Khabib’s retirement from the sport after defeating Justin Gaethje seemingly irking the former two-weight world champion once again.
In fact, he even supported the wild conspiracy theories around the UFC 254 weigh-ins where it was claimed Nurmagomedov never actually hit 155lbs for the title fight against Justin Gaethje.

“I tell you what, he is looking like an elephant,” McGregor told TheMacLife. “He’s looking like a little fat elephant at the minute, he is enjoying himself.
“I don’t think he made weight the last time either out here, I was very sceptical on the scales – very unusual behaviour. But, it is what it is.
“How you could walk away at this stage is baffling to me, but each to their own. There’s so many amazing fights out there and even the carry on with the Tony situation, I don’t care about nothing.
“You’re scheduled to fight a man, no matter what. Fights must take place; you can’t just scurry away from bouts, it’s been the hallmark of his approach and I was not surprised to see him walk away. Or scurry away I should say, but it is what it is and we carry on.”

Khabib walked away from the UFC completely after submitting Gaethje back in October, with no return lined up in spite of Dana White’s best efforts.
The 51-year-old told MMA Junkie: “When I left Abu Dhabi last time, and he and I were texting, we went back and forth on why I think he should keep fighting.
“He was super emotional coming out of that fight. He’s had time now to rest, think about it, (and) all the other things.
“This is going to be a five-minute conversation. … I think he’ll fight, but we’ll see. It’s not going to be an argument or a lengthy conversation. It’s going to be a ‘yes’ or ‘no.’”
